Description

Dear Prospective Offerors: The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is seeking proposals to provide technical assistance and support to USAID/Ukraine’s Office of Economic Growth to enable supported male and female grain and oilseed farmers, including marginalized and underserved groups, to return production and income for target commodities to at least pre-war levels while improving production efficiency and profitability and position farmers to market their crops more successfully and profitably in the wartime context, as described in the attached Request for Proposals (RFP). The Contractor must focus specifically on the following target commodities; barley, corn, soybean, sunflower, and wheat. USAID anticipates awarding a single Cost Plus Fixed Fee (CPFF) completion type contract over a five (5) years period of performance, subject to availability of funds. The maximum available funding of this procurement is $250 million. Offerors are encouraged to maximize the use of the available funding (a.k.a “build to budget”) and should consider this an operating constraint as part of the submitted Performance Work Statement. The Government is in no way obligated to make any award within the maximum estimated cost identified. Offerors should propose costs that are appropriate, realistic and reasonable, in accordance with the proposed approach for achieving results, and meet or exceed the required minimum results. USAID invites all interested and responsible organizations to submit offers in accordance with the requirements of this solicitation. USAID will conduct this procurement as a full and open competition under which any type of organization may submit a proposal. The procedures set forth in Federal Acquisition Regulation (“FAR”) Part 15 will govern the procurement. The competition will utilize a Highest Technical Rated with Fair and Reasonable Price and Realistic Cost (HTR) process, not a tradeoff process. In this process, USAID is concerned with getting the best technical solution that has a fair and reasonable price and realistic cost. There will not be a tradeoff to justify paying a premium for a higher technical rated proposal. The geographic code for this procurement is 935, and the NAICS code is 541690. If your organization decides to submit a proposal in response to this solicitation, it must be submitted in accordance with Section L of this RFP. Offerors must also carefully review Section M - Evaluation Factors as well as the attached Statement of Objectives. Proposals are to be submitted to USAID/Ukraine no later than the closing date and time stated above, to the email address designated in Section L for receipt of proposals. If the proposal is received after the closing date and time, or if it is incomplete, it will not be accepted or considered unless authorized by the Contracting Officer pursuant to FAR 15.208. This RFP in no way obligates USAID to award a contract nor does it commit USAID to pay any costs incurred in the preparation and submission of a proposal. Award of a contract under this RFP is subject to availability of funds and other internal USAID approvals. Furthermore, USAID reserves the right to reject any and/or all offers if such action is considered to be in the best interest of the Government. All questions, comments, and/or requests for clarifications must be sent in writing to Contracting Officer Carter Saunders and casaunders@usaid.gov and kyivrcoeg@usaid.gov no later than the date and time indicated above. This RFP can be viewed and downloaded from https://sam.gov. USAID bears no responsibility for data errors resulting from transmission or conversion processes. Further, be aware that amendments to solicitations are occasionally issued and will be posted on the same website. USAID advises interested parties to regularly check the above websites for amendments. Thank you for your interest and we look forward to your participation. Sincerely, /S/ Craig Riegler Director Regional Contracting Office USAID/Ukraine
